I have no idea when I'll recover, and every day, when I awake, I don't always have the best energy levels. Sometimes for weeks, I struggle just to leave the house to do stuff.

If you support me at this tier, I can't promise much - but if you have any questions about me or about depression, I will do my best to answer your questions here, or privately depending on your choice. I will also update my patreons monthly on my latest struggles, separate from my blog as it can be a bit more personal here.

Thank you!

I'm currently recovering from depression, but my hope is that by the time you read this, I'm already on the way out of, or even free of depression for a while.

But the battle against depression and the battle for minds will never end. Depression will hit 10 - 20% of Singaporeans at any time, and the stigma in society internationally is real. People still think of depression as just being sad, or unhappy. I aim to change that.

Depressed Dave is a stickman comic that helps to demystify depression, and I want to continue working on this. I write about depression as well, if comics are too light an avenue to discuss something as dark as depression. 

I don't purport to be the best person to do this work, but I know that I'm passionate about this, and that I have sufficient content to continue to persuade people that depression is nothing to be scared of, even as I hope to encourage sufferers to know that they are never alone. You can review my content at Depressed Dave's Comics, and Depression in SG.

I also write fiction and poetry at Hamster Squeaks.

Your support will mean that I will be able to continue to do this work that means a lot to me, even as I have a family to feed. 

Thank you for even reading to this point. Please consider supporting my work!
